About the Flinders University
Flinders University is a South Australian public university. It was named after navigator Matthew Flinders, who explored and surveyed the South Australian coastline in the early nineteenth century.
Flinders is a verdant university and a member of the Innovative Research Universities (IRU) Group, ranking 10-16 in Australia and 36th in the world among those established less than 50 years. Academically, the university pioneered a multidisciplinary approach to education, and its faculties of medicine and humanities are among the top ten in the country.
The number of ICAS available each year will be determined by the Commonwealth government’s annual funding. Each scholarship will be worth $7500 per year and will be paid in two installments of $3750.
